The checker pattern is one that has it’s design roots from long ago, but it has been making a very big comeback in trend lately. You can find checker patterns on just about anything from clothing and hats, to rugs and mugs!

And last week I just painted the COOLEST checkered pattern accent wall on my son’s bedroom!

Let’s learn a little more about it’s history before we check out some of the best wallpapers with check patterns below.

What is the history of checker pattern?

The checker pattern, also known as checkered, checkerboard or checked, has a long and varied history that stretches back millennia.

  • The checkerboard pattern has been used in various ways throughout history, appearing in:
    • Architecture, from grand palaces to Victorian ballrooms
    • Fashion, with iconic uses by brands like Burberry and Vivienne Westwood
  • The pattern has also taken on symbolic meaning. For example, in the 1970s, the checkered pattern became associated with the anti-segregation movement through second-wave Ska music.

What is the difference between a plaid and check pattern?

Plaid and check patterns are both made of intersecting horizontal and vertical stripes, but there are some key differences.

Plaid vs. Check patterns

Color and Complexity

Plaids are more complex with multiple colors, typically more than two and a wider variety in the stripe layout. Their stripes can be different widths and don’t create perfect squares.

Check patterns are simpler in design with typically only two colors and uniform squares that are the same width.

Look and Feel

Plaid patterns often give a more refined, yet rustic feel. A plaid pattern can be found on curtains, shirts or even throw blankets or pillows.

Depending on the color choice a check pattern can look either classic and elegant (think a classic black and white checked tile floor) or a more trendy modern feel (think a lavender check pattern on a teen’s shirt).

Checkered wall designs

Creating a checkered wall pattern is fun and whimsical and a design that will last for a while. I just created a beautiful checkerboard pattern wall in my son’s tween bedroom.

This pattern transitioned from checkered to stripe and added the perfect amount of color and interest to his space.
